I got infected (windows xp antivirus, or some similar name). I rebooted in safe mode, ran rkill fine, then an up to date Malware Bytes, which found and removed 3 problems. But after rebooting, anytime I run rkill.com or iExplore.exe, I get 3 cascading dialog boxed labeled "Error" with the message "installation failed." After that, rkill seems to run fine, but once found and terminated a "xe" process. I'm now trying an Ad-Aware full scan. Any idea what's causing these boxes to pop up and how to stop this behavior? I'm running Windows XP.

Can you post the logs from Malwarebytes?

I hadn't realized until yesterday that Malware Bytes is best run in normal mode. Re-ran it, it found a problem in a restore point (see log below), which was then removed. I rebooted, and I get the same 3 error messages before rkill runs. Here's the normal mode mbam scan:
